Default Treatment Resistant anyone?

Has anyone else been dealing with a diagnosed mental illness, be it depression, anxiety, personality disorders, psychotic disorders, etc; that has not responded to any treatment?

I been suffering for over a a decade. Been diagnosed with several disorders over the years. Since the beginning, I been taking medications and was always in therapy, many different therapists over the years. Not only have I never got better or improved but I actually been getting worse steadily over the past 3 years. I don't have hope anymore, and I don't see the point in giving it time or having patience, as that is what I been doing for over 10 years. But the fact that it just keeps on getting worse and worse as time goes on is really extremely discouraging and makes me feel I am beyond hope and help.

If anyone else is dealing with this, how are you coping? How long have you been dealing with this? What have you tried?

If I were you, I wouldn't only rely on therapy to solve problems. I would turn to other resources like books, the Internet, podcasts, meditation, journaling, etc. WinnerButLoner Googled his way out of depression.

SensualGirl has a good point. Between the failures of the medical community and the difficulty of diagnosing and treating depression (a word so broad, and so overused, I think it’s losing meaning) , it’s becoming clear we need to direct our own treatment, if not simply treat ourselves.

There are, I know, things to try that haven't been tried, and ways to think that I haven't bothered thinking yet.
